    1. Permitting Procedure for Private Ambulance Service
      The proposed ambulance permitting procedure is essentially a form of registration for private ambulances wishing to operate in the City of Baytown. The objectives of the new permitting procedure are:
      • To ensure that the Fire Department is aware of all private ambulance services operating in the City, by requiring the private ambulance companies to register with the Fire Department.
      • To ensure that all private ambulance services operating in the City have been appraised of the City ambulance ordinance, by distributing and reviewing the ordinance at the time of registration.
      • To ensure that the Fire Department has contact numbers and names for the private ambulance service, so that the Public Safety Communications Division may call the service in the event of an emergency and so that the Fire Department may contact the service in the event of a citizen complaint or for an inspection.
      The ordinance will not attempt to establish competency or qualifications of the private ambulance service or its personnel. The Fire Department will respond to any complaints by citizens or visitors regarding the performance of a private ambulance, and will perform annual inspections of private ambulances to ensure minimal compliance to State regulations. The permitting process will not impact ambulance services that transport patients TO Baytown. Ambulance agencies that pick up patients within the City Limits must be permitted. Enforcement of the private ambulance permitting process will be the responsibility of the Fire Department. The ordinance will not permit or attempt to track the individual personnel employed by the private ambulance service. It is the responsibility of the private ambulance service to maintain compliance with all Texas Department of State Health Services regulations, including staffing requirements.
